Running a business – especially a small business – is about more than profit and loss. It’s about contributing to the health of the community and being a good neighbor. That’s why I make giving back an integral part of my business practice.
My philosophy is to give generously and consistently to the community I serve and to which I owe so much of my success – in business and in life.
For over twenty years, Christmas 4 Kids has given the joy of Christmas to thousands of Middle Tennessee children that might not otherwise experience it. Each December, local businesses, volunteers, celebrities, recording artists, and their bus drivers set aside two days from their busy schedules for these special children.
I’m proud to be aligned with a firm that gives back as well. Since its founding in 1937, Waddell & Reed has consistently been a strong supporter of community, cultural and charitable causes regionally and nationally.
It provides a platform for two types of philanthropic and charitable support: direct from the company and directly from financial advisors and employees.
In fact, employees and financial advisors are encouraged to select philanthropic organizations and events in which their involvement will have an ongoing and meaningful impact.
